Tomorrow I start shopping for the 80 to 100 person feast I’m cooking for Saturday.  Troubles have already occurred — although I asked several times at my butcher shop if the capons they were selling for a high price were actually casterated roosters, when I contacted the company to find out how they were casterated (one of my guests have a problem with estrogen) I found out that they don’t actually sell roosters…  the shop was useless in their response to this (they – the manager and the owner) didn’t seem to think that it was their responsibility to know what they are selling). I’m very upset (especially since this is one of my favorite places).  I’m hoping that this is the last major challenge I face… although I still haven’t tested the bread recipes I’m baking on site (in site because I wanted the smell to waft through the hall through the day. ..). I’ll let you know how it all goes…
